Relate with others on an individual, social and global scale towards the non-violent pursuit of peace. Peace and Conflict Studies is an interdisciplinary two-year diploma program that emphasizes peace relations through understanding, education and action. This program is premised on a holistic conceptualization of peace that is aligned with the ideas expressed in the United Nations Declaration and Program of Action on a Culture of Peace and encompasses the work and perspectives of peace researchers over the last several decades. Themes of human rights, positive communication skills, social justice, personal wellness, holistic thinking, prevention and mitigation are integral to this program. These topics will allow you to develop exemplary critical thinking and problem solving skills and will prepare you to be a strong community leader and global participant. The program will have a shared emphasis between theory and practise.
